Medication Management Psychiatrists
If you're looking for medication management in Seattle, these professionals provide Seattle medication management services. They include psychiatrists in Seattle, psychiatric nurses in Seattle, psychologists and therapists and can work with children or adults in managing medications or meds.

The professionals monitor the medications a client takes to confirm that they are complying with a regimen, while also ensuring they avoid harmful drug interactions and other complications. They help patients keep track of the medications used and may create lists describing medications and their dosages. These lists can be provided to patients to help them track their drugs and understand why various meds are being prescribed. Seattle Medication management may also include reminding patients about whether or not drugs need to be taken with food, and warning patients about potential side effects of medications such as fatigue, hunger, or altered level of consciousness. Antidepressants, psychiatric medications and psychotropics in Seattle, must be prescribed by a doctor (MD) ,although the management of medication in Seattle can be handled by a broader group of professionals (e.g. Seattle psychiatric nurses and [ GEO] psychopharmacologists) appropriately licensed for their level of care.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

A Psychiatrist in Seattle is a qualified medical doctor who specializes in treating mental health issues and diagnosable disorders.

Seattle Psychiatrists differ from other mental health professionals in that they may prescribe medication or psychotropics. Psychiatrists may conduct physical examinations, order and interpret lab tests and brain image scans, such as CT scans, CAT Scans and MRIs.

Some psychiatric practitioners in Seattle specialize in age groups (so check for Seattle child psychiatrists or adolescent psychiatrists in Seattle). Those who work with the elderly are called geriatric psychiatrists or geropsychiatrists.

Other related specialties include psychopharmacology (certain states license Psychopharmacologists), psychiatric genetics and neuroimaging.

Psychiatric nurse practitioners in Seattle, or mental health nurse practitioners, perform many of the same functions as a psychiatrist. This includes diagnosing mental illness and prescribing medication. Seattle Psychiatric nurse practitioners also act as a therapist, helping patients with depression, anxiety and suicidal individuals, as well as other conditions that can be remedied with counseling.

Nurses monitor for side effects and responses to medical treatments and offer information on medications so that clients can make informed choices about their use.
